Support for same-sex marriage is gaining momentum. So says a new CNN/Opinion Research survey.

More than half of Americans are buying into the notion that marriages between same-sex couples should be lawful.

Specifically, 51 percent of survey respondents say the unions should be legally recognized.

CNN Polling Director Keating Holland noted that more than 60 percent of Democrats approve of same-sex marriage, while more than half of Independents give the nod. Republicans remain staunchly against it, with 70 percent disapproving of same-sex marriages.
